Mother's Intuition

Saturday Westview Cheer hosted a cheer competition.
I worked with my friend Kathy in the snack bar all day and when it came time for the Westview team to do an exhibition cheer I decided to stay behind and let the other moms go watch. The minute I made this decision I felt my gut say that Molly was going to get hurt... I brushed it off and went back to work stocking, rotating and facing pop (i've discovered a ocd issue when i work snack bars).

I could hear the girls cheer in the background and then applause... :-)
Then, my friend Kathy came to me looking very troubled and said, "go find Molly she got hurt."

Turns out it's a nasty black eye from being hit catching her flyer. Who says cheerleading is for sissys? She'll be fine but it's ugly.

So, what was that? Intuition? I'm not sure that it would have been better to watch it happen...

maybe it was God just preparing you. Poor kid. looks painful.

i think the bigger question here is what is it with your family and eyes this month? perhaps everyone should wear safety goggles for a while...

you need to post a pic of her each day, so we can watch the bruise turn colors :)

Ouch! But I must say that is one AWESOME bruise!

oh! OH!!! Youch! Yet, she still manages to look beautiful. I guess purple is a good color for her. Molly, I'm sorry! I shouldn't joke about it...

So.....THAT'S what I have to look forward to???? Great....I might as well sign the girls up for wrestling!

Molly is still gorgeous...even with a huge shiner!
